Abuja - Convener of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) group, Oby Ezekwesili has lamented the blockade by the police as it marched to Aso Rock on Tuesday, September 6 to protest about the missing Chibok girls.
Ezekwesili, in series of tweets on Tuesday said that the protest to the presidential villa was actually a test for President Buhari, which he appears to have failed.
According to Ezekwesili, the BBOG has a right to protest as empowered by the 1999 constitution and the police should not in any way stop the group.
She stated that if the government and the police are not careful, they could end up like the former administration of Goodluck Jonathan, who was voted out of office for failing to rescue the abducted Chibok girls among other things.
The Nigeria police on Tuesday, September 6, banned all forms of protest within the Federal Capital Territory.
The police said the command will not fold its arms and watch some individuals or group of persons tamper with the existing peaceful atmosphere within the FCT.
In a statement by the FCT police spokesperson Anjuguri Manzah, said the command has observed with concern the disregard for the rule of law by some individuals or group of persons with the FCT.
